SISKIYOU JOINT UNION
I-IICI-I SCI-IDOL DISTRICT
From a thin line of thirteen states on the Atlantic seaboard, Americans of many origins
have builded a nation across a continent to the shores of the Pacific, writing as they
pressed on and on the American saga of freedom, equality, and opportunity. Along that
march they paused to build public schools, all dedicated to the same high purpose, educa-
tion for democracy, and Liberty and Justice for all. Today, in peace as in war, our country
is claiming from these schools leadership they have every right to expect in the difficult
work of preserving for ourselves and our posterity, the principles of freedom, justice and
democracy. Our very way of life had been jeopardized with the attack on Pearl Harbor
and our Country accepted the gauge of battle which was forced upon us by the totalitarian
governments. Into this battle for the right went the might and force of a free people
fighting in defense of a cause which they know to be just. When their Country was in
danger, great numbers of students and former students of the Siskiyou Joint Union High
Schools courageously entered the Armed Forces and gallantly defended the faith of Amer-
ica, on land-on sea-and in the air. Our students distinguished themselves in all branches
of the service. Unfortunately, though, over a hundred of our high school students in the
county have been killed in action, and over a hundred others have been wounded. Several
of our former teachers have given their lives for our country too.
The Seniors in the Class of 1946 have chosen "Education-The Way to Lasting Peacev
as their central theme for the 1946 White and Gold and have dedicated this issue to "All
Who Made Victory Possiblef, As students and citizens, the two main goals we should
keep before us are: First, to win and secure the peace, and second, to preserve our Amer-
ican way of life, which is based on our Democratic American system of free enterprise
and private initiative.
The American Way and Democracy are synonymous terms and the Public School is
the foundation stone of Democracy. The Seniors of the Class of 1946 of the Siskiyou
Joint Union High School District are gratefully appreciative of the fine system of high
schools and the splendid educational opportunities the Board of Trustees of the Siskiyou
Joint Union High School District is providing for the boys and girls of the Siskiyou Joint
Union High Schools. We are ever mindful that the creative men who serve us as Trustees
and give so much of their time and energy to youth and our schools are themselves true
symbols of the American Way and our progressive school system.
When the Pilgrims came to America, one of their first acts was to establish a school
for their children. And when the early pioneer settlers came to Siskiyou County they
early established schools for the benefit of their children and their children,s children.
We are grateful to those early Pioneers of Education, and we are deeply grateful also to
the men who make up the present progressive Board of Trustees of the Siskiyou Joint Union
High School District, whose consciousness of the faithful and unselfish discharge of their
civic duty can be their only reward and through whose efforts we are enjoying the benefits
of the finest educational systems in the State.
The Seniors of 1946 are truly grateful and appreciative for the fine group of men who
make up our progressive High School Board, and for the excellent system of high schools
provided for us.
